Students who are taking an online class at Reynolds may be required by the faculty member teaching their course to have their tests proctored. This means that you must have your test monitored by a testing system or human professional. As an online student in the Virginia Community College System, you have several options for proctoring at Reynolds. 

If your instructor requires you to use the Respondus Monitor Testing System, you can find instructions below. 

If your instructor requires you to use a human test proctor please contact the Testing Center to learn more about your options, including information for visiting Testing Centers at other VCCS institution campuses.

Instructors who need information about using Respondus Monitor will find that information in the Faculty Learning Center in Canvas. For more information about human proctored testing, please contact the Testing Center.
